    Thanks for all of the comments and advice. I do want to keep some of it in the tank, just dont want it covering the zoa's. I personally can't see killing any of it. I want to move some into one of our other tanks....8)

    In that case, snip the polyps off and rubberband them to a piece of rock rubble until they attach. Then, if you're lucky, you can sell them to club members (assuming you have that option) or trade them in for credit at your local fish store :D

    ok so I retract the question,
    Anthelia is more of a matting type single stem coral, non pumping
    xenia is more a trunk then multiple heads pumping is that close or am I off base
